Orthodontic Appliances and Techniques
TransForce® Lingual Appliances integrate with all conventional fixed appliances at any
stage to simplify treatment. This approach is affordable and efficient, and typically reduces
the time required in a fixed appliance by 50%. This is a very important factor, especially in
adult therapy. In many cases alignment and arch form can be improved to a stage where
invisible finishing appliances may be used to detail the occlusion
Twin Block appliances are simple bite blocks that are designed for full-time wear. They achieve rapid functional correction of malocclusion by the transmission of favourable occlusal forces to occlusal inclined planes that cover the posterior teeth. The forces of occlusion are used as the functional mechanism to correct the malocclusion
The Fixed Twin Block is the new kid on the block! This is an extremely efficient fixed functional technique. Animal experiments with fixed occlusal inclined planes established the first scientific evidence of the potential of fixed functional appliances in dentofacial orthopaedics.
